Tamarind House Rarotonga Wedding Photos – Todd & Jenny’s sneak peek!

Hi guys!

Last week, we had the pleasure of photographing Todd & Jenny’s gorgeous wedding at the Tamarind House restaurant.

 

We headed around to catch up with the boys first off – they were having a relaxing morning chilling out in the sun :)

Jenny had kept her dress a secret from everyone, even her bridesmaids!

So we felt really privileged to get inside for a little sneak peek at her dress, and to be on-hand to catch everyone’s reactions once she walked out into the lounge.

There was a cool patch of light coming through the window, making for a great little spotlight to sit in!

One of the coolest things about having your guests staying at the same resort as you… is that you can peek out the windows & check out how everyone is looking as they leave for the ceremony!

Jenny’s dress had a really gorgeous slip-over layer of lace, which had a beautiful long train… and also meant we could whip it off when we did their ‘drown the gown’ shoot 2 days later.

After the ceremony, we headed down onto the beach right outside the Tamarind House, where the coconut trees framed the perfect horizon & blue ocean.

One of the resident cats at the Tamarind House decided that the back of Jenny’s dress would be a cool plaything… it stalked her around the place!

The appearance of the cat was pretty cool, apparently!

We were racing the sunset by this stage, so we headed up the road to witness the beauty of the sky lighting up… and Todd & Jenny had the chance to sneak in a quick ‘first dance’ practice too.

The sunset was suitably awesome – and we got our lights out to make the most of the dramatic feel :)

Back at the Tamarind House, it was essentially fully dark… the guests were waiting inside for Todd & Jenny to make their entrance… but we managed to sneak in a few extra shots. I love this one on the platform… backlit against the night sky.

The reception was fantastic – great food, beautiful speeches, and some fantastic dancing. What more could you ask for?

That was the end of the wedding… but not the end of the photos!

2 days later, we caught up with Todd & Jenny again, and spent the morning getting some really fun shots around the island… just a good chance to get a bit more adventurous, without the time limitations of the wedding day… and even getting the dress wet at the end. Here’s what we captured.
